    What kind of 22 ammo was this? Still seems pretty steep to me.

    Glad to see inventory is picking up. Still seems a little steep.

    Now the only question is why didn't you buy 3 boxes?!

    Seems like things are easing slightly. I sure wish primers would make a return to store shelves. Especially small pistol and rifle.

    I guess it's not too bad if it were 50 round boxes of Stingers. In fact, if it was, that's not too bad at all for around here anyway.

    The sad part of this is that the distributors have not increased their wholesale price a significant amount but the LGS's in my area have double or tripled their prices. The Remington Value Pack 525 rounds with a 30% markup should sell for $21.50 based on the invoice I saw today but was priced at $59.95 and still sold out in about two hours even with a two box limit. This same ammo sold for $15.95 before the frenzy started.

    Lucky ducks. I've been stalking stores and trying to find some at a decent price. I was happy to find a few boxes of .22 Shorts. Sure it limits me to my single six, but at least it's something.

    I wonder how many new gun owners are paying the much higher prices unaware of what ammo was selling for before the panic.
